Why do we seem to enjoy hating Madonna so much? Is it because women secretly wish they could look like her at 50 (or even 30 in some cases)? Is it because men shudder at the fact they still want to have sex with a 54 year old woman? Or are we terrified that such a powerful force in the world is not an American President or a Government figure, but a female pop star in her mid-50s? Perhaps that’s what it really boils down to: the patriarchal West is terrified of a woman with that much power.
